What’s This TV Show About?
Streaming on the HBO Max subscription service, Doom Patrol stars Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Brendan Fraser, Matt Bomer, Timothy Dalton, and Joivan Wade. The superhero drama centers on Robotman aka Cliff Steele (Fraser), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (Bomer), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Wade) who all gained their abilities in disfiguring accidents. This ragtag team of outcasts comes together under the leadership of mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Dalton). In season three, we see the culmination of Dorothy’s (Abi Monterey) confrontation with the Candlemaker that leads to a devastating loss. The Doom Patrol is at a difficult crossroads and each member struggles to face who they are and who they want to be. Things get more complicated when Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez) arrives in a time machine with a very specific mission — if only she could remember it.
Unless they decide to publicize viewership, it is difficult to predict whether HBO Max will cancel or renew Doom Patrol for season four. Since HBO Max isn’t ad-supported, it can take a chance on series it believes in, but sooner or later it comes down to production costs, versus viewership numbers.
